1. Once (2007) In early summer of 2007, two films were released with R ratings. One featured a scene where a naked woman is suspended from a ceiling while another naked woman slashes her with a scythe and bathes in her blood. The other featured two Dublin musicians singing songs together, falling in love, and opting not to act on it. In spite of their comically vast discrepancy in content, Hostel 2 and Once both required a parent or guardian to accompany minors under 18 years of age, and the contrast between them underscored the vagaries of the R rating. If a hyper-violent piece of torture porn could fit under the same umbrella as a sweetly melancholy, sex-and-violence-free tale of unrequited love, then what does the rating even mean?

The scene was not unlike 12 Angry Men (or, in this case, 3 Shlubby Men, 1 Exasperated Woman, And A Dude On Speaker Phone From Arkansas ): Armed with lists of their favorite movies of the decade, the five core A.V. Club film writers spent days sequestered in a stuffy, un-air-conditioned room—okay, it was actually just a few hours, and we were comfortable—in an effort to forge consensus on the Top 50 films of the ’00s. The result: A ranked list that is in no way arbitrary and will serve as the canonical standard for decades to come. You’re welcome. 50. Oldboy (2003)
Face to face with a baby snow leopard A wild baby snow leopard has been caught on camera. Filmed over 5,000m up in the highlands of Bhutan in the Himalayas, the baby leopard investigates a camera trap set by a BBC Natural history film crew. The young snow leopard walks right up to the camera lens, sniffing it before off-screen walking into the bleak, rocky snow swept landscape. Snow leopards are the highest living of all big cats, and are among the most rare and elusive of all animals. "No wonder hardly anyone sees snow leopards, they are just so well camouflaged.
My father woke me up five in the morning, it was early, but it didn’t matter; I hadn’t slept well. I had time for a quick cup of tea and a slice of rye bread and then we were off to the airport. Mum got up to wish me a good trip, I hugged her as deeply and warmly as I could, sleepy she smiled and told me to stay safe. I went down the two flights of stairs and out into the cold street where my father waited impatiently in the car.
